Okeford’s Fundraising Jam Maker Extraordinaire Hangs Up her Preserving Pan

After over 30 years of making jams and chutneys to raise funds for Okeford Fitzpaine Village Hall, local resident Anthea Calcott has decided to stop creating her popular preserves which have featured at fetes and sales in the area. Anthea is also a recycling genius- as everything has been sourced from gluts or windfalls. An incredible £21,000 has been raised over the years from jam and chutney sales which has contributed to improvements at the village hall.
